Windows 10 – CPU Utilization in Task Manager

cpu usagewindows 10

I have a question about the graph of CPU utilization in the Task Manager's performance tab. What does, for example, 25% 1.8 GHz mean? What is the scaling for the percentage? If there is a thermal throttle occurring, is the percentage over the available power or the maximum possible power? Is turbo boost taken into account?

Thank you.

It is simply the resource usage percentage out of hundred. It is not related to scaling.

1.8 GHz is your processor frequency. Read the values in task manager to know more. Below the graph everything is given in detail. (Total capacity as well as the current usage).
